I switched to Infinity towards the end of 2010 as I was fed up with the erratic service from BT BB. Infinity speeds were great for months. Average download 35-36Mb/s. Upload not so hot at 5-6Mb/s but that was ok.
For the past few weeks download speed has dropped right down to 9-10Mb/s irrespective of the time of day. This is not what I am paying for. I was assured by the engineer that the speed would NEVER drop. So what has happened? My set-up remains the same. I have re-set the hub but still no improvement.
Appreciate any advice. Thanks.
Solved! Go to Solution.
If that's the speed your getting with a wired connection mate there's something wrong. Save yourself a load of frustration by not phoning BT india and email one of the mods here explaining the issue. Try and add as much info as you can and it *should* get fixed for you.
had exactly the same problem. 3 OR engineers tested line/exchange, said it's perfect, no problems. So BT's answer was "erm.. dunno. As long as it's over 15meg then live with it".
I thought it was just me, but it looks like lots of others are having the same problem. How much testing did BT actually do with this product before expecting us to pay through the nose for it?
The first step to working out what is wrong is to run the BT Speedtest (http://speedtester.bt.com/) from a wired PC with nothing else running on the network. That will show your current throughput and IP profile. It is possible that your lines profile needs resetting alternatively it may be an issue on your home network this test will show where the problem lies.
Thank you - yes I agree. It was working absolutely fine until a couple of weeks ago. I don't know how to email the mods - will search through the forums to see if there is a link.
Just ran Speedtester.bt.com
Configured throughput speed 36589Kbps
Download speed achieved during the test 3940Kbps
Upload speed achieved during the test 4820Kbps.
What is going on?????
I don't know how to contact a Moderator. Are they employed by BT to sort out problems? Thanks
Ok - now I feel stupid.
I am working from an Apple Mac. Somehow the Airport wireless connection was turned on (I'll blame the kids) so the previous results are wireless connections.
Wired speeds are as follows
34.79Mbps download. 5.56Mbps upload.
Sorry folks. Appreciate people taking the time to reply.
